For a manual implementation: 

Implement a review capability within the monitoring logging tool by tracking security event alert notification to triage and to remediation. It is up to each company to decide the format. Typically, it is expected for any alert notification to be logged into a ticket in which remediation activities are documented.

What evidence do auditors look for?

Most auditors, at a minimum are looking for the below suggested action:

  • Provide screenshot of the review capability within the tool
  • Provide an example of an alert received and remediation

Evidence example

1.Provide a screenshot of the review capability within the tool.
